There’s no better way of getting involved with life at Lancaster and your student media than by joining SCAN. As one of the oldest and most prominent groups on campus – established in 1967 – we’ve undergone many changes over the years and have only continued to improve. SCAN is an acronym for Student Comment And News, with a wide range of sections for aspiring journalist, photographers, artists and writers to become a part of. Our wide range of sections and passion for inclusion and diversity allow members to express what matters most, be that breaking news, film reviews or sport commentary.

If you have a question for a specific section editor, head to our Editorial Team page to find their individual email addresses.

Otherwise, please email, and someone will be in contact as soon as they can!
